Why would anyone care what this douchebag thinks?
Sorry, but saying you have a civic duty to vote for the Democrat or Republican but not a third party is just stupid. If they're on the ballot... VOTE FOR THEM.
Regardless, screw what anyone says about who you should vote for. Vote for the person you want to not the person that they say you should. I'm voting for Jill Stein because I believe that we need a third party. If she doesn't win, that's fine but at least I can live with the fact that I didn't sell out my values just because someone said to vote for the candidate that has the backing of millions of dollars of special interest money.
The 'standards' that you go on about are simply a guideline set by a group of people that have the interests of whoever they're working for at heart. I'm sick of all this harping about "standards" being the holy grail, be-all-end-all of technology.
Meanwhile, millions of people are using Apple Maps just fine - myself included. I love how people try to compare a service that has been in place for two weeks vs. a service that has been in place for seven years and has collected much more data.
Just because you're in the vocal majority doesn't mean you're right.
And, for the record, Google Maps was never removed from iOS because it was never on iOS.
I can't believe the tech community still clings to the notion that Chrome is good just because they have a false belief that Google is some great bastion of technology when they're not; they're just another pathetic ad company.
